It has been claimed by Samsung that since the launch of the Galaxy Note 3 two months ago, the device has finally crossed the 10 million shipment mark.
An infographic was released by the South Korean tech giant which highlights the key mobile phones to make into the ’10 million seller club’ since 2002, the Samsung SGH-T100 being the first.
The two smartphones by Samsung to cross the 10 million shipment mark are the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
The Galaxy Note 3 has had similar sales figures like its predecessors, the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Samsung Galaxy Note. However, these are just the channel sales or shipments figures. Samsung never provides the actual sales figures.
Still it is a very good indicator of the popularity of the Galaxy Note 3, as it took the original Galaxy Note almost nine months to cross the 10 million channel sales, and it took the Note 2 around four months to do the same.
The majority of international markets had received the Note 3 on September 25th, so it makes it a little over two months’ time it took to cross the 10 million shipment mark.
The Galaxy Note 3 was unveiled at IFA 2013 alongside the Galaxy Gear smartwatch by Samsung. The device has a 5 inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3 GHz. The phone has 3GB RAM.
Apart from all these high end specs, it has been loaded with the new generation S-Pen Stylus with better features for the Galaxy Note 3.
The device has a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front camera. It is backed up by a 3200mAh battery and has 4G LTE connectivity too along with all other basic connectivity options including NFC.
